  • Weekend Football: How hard can it be to land a three team acca?

    undertherobe on 08 Oct at 20:35

    As soon as West Ham fell to a 2-0 deficit, it was never going to be a good week for the blog and so it transpired as only one of the five picks won although it could have been so much better had at least a couple of the three draws fell down on the right side. Onto this week and with the International break, it’s a truncated acca with just three picks from Leagues One, Two and the National League. It can’t be that difficult to pick three winners can it?............ Running Totals Singles: 15/28 (53.57% strike rate), 1.93 pts profit (6.89% roi) Accumulators: 1/6 (16.67% strike rate), 11.40 pts profit (190% roi) A quick recap of the rules I’ve set myself for this experiment, Rule One No odds are out of range. We hear stories all the time of a short priced favourite…

  • Melbourne Cup Big Race Trends - An Alternative Approach

    Robmull on 10 Oct at 14:38

    The Melbourne Cup is scheduled to be run during the earlier hours of the morning UK time of Tuesday, 3 November at Flemington racecourse in Australia and is widely known as the race that stops a nation. The Melbourne Cup is in many ways an anathema to UK based punters as it is a Grade 1 handicap, which is run over 2 miles and is contested by genuine Group class runners, who have often been aggressively campaigned over much shorter distances prior to turning up at Flemington for what may be the horses first ever run over the distance. With an average field size of 23 runners during the last decade and plenty of horses shipped in from Europe and Japan specifically for the race, who will have spent significant time in quarantine taking on the best of the Australian…

  • Portugese Masters Golf - Vilamoura ** TIPS ADDED**

    Ralfie1982 on 12 Oct at 08:52

    Portugese Masters Golf SO SO So close last time out at the British Masters, we still made a tidy profit on Lee Slattery (FRL 80/1 ew) was pipped to 1st by The eventual winner Matt Fitz. still tidy profit. Paul Lawrie had to withdraw so no bet there! As for the outright market, going into the final two days with Aphibarnrat and Kjeldsen, in T1 & 3 respectively, It was a hugely frustrating afternoon to see Aphibarnrat have a bad couple of holes shortly after the turn to blow his chance and Kjeldsen was just short but I cant really complain as the winner was outstanding from wire to wire. The Courses & Stats £2m prize pot PAR 71 Plays 7209yrds Putting looks to be key as it is a course that is recognised for low scores (ignore 2014 some what!) Only 3…

  • Why Always Him: Did Balotellli Get Brendan Rodgers Sacked?

    garethp1981 on 11 Oct at 14:03

    As a Manchester United fan, the last thing you might expect to hear me doing is expressing sympathy for Liverpool fans. But I always try to be unbiased on this blog and this is exactly what I am going to do here for to an extent. Liverpool were the best team in England in the 1970s and 1980s, and Manchester United were the best team of the 1990s and 2000s. On current evidence it looks like neither of these teams is likely to be the most successful in this current decade unless significant improvements are made, and I am afraid this is especially true of Liverpool, with Manchester United having won the last two titles of the Ferguson era in this decade. I am sure it is difficult to be a fan of a team that hasn’t tasted successful at…

  • In Form Trainers - 12 to 18 October 2015 - Updated

    Robmull on 11 Oct at 16:56

    The purpose of this blog is to highlight trainers in Britain that are currently in good form based on a minimum of 5 winners at a strike rate of 20% or more during the last 14 days up to the close of racing on Saturday. In addition, I will endeavour to list where these trainers have horses entered at racecourses over the forthcoming week where the trainer has been profitable to follow since the start of 2011 and will also highlight any jockeys that have been profitable to follow when teaming up with our in form trainers, during 2015. There is an old saying that states that success breeds further success and whilst most training stables come in and out of form during the year, it often pays to keep a close eye on a trainer’s runners when the stable…

  • College Football Week Six: A defensive battle in the SEC awaits

    undertherobe on 08 Oct at 22:27

    Week Five was a huge week in terms of playoff implications with quite a bit of movement amongst the teams in contention. Michigan State almost let a big lead slip at home to Purdue and that cost them favour with AP voters as they fell to 4th whilst big wins for TCU and Baylor lifted them to 2nd and 3rd respectively. Ohio State remain number one despite struggling in Indiana and they continue to get less first place votes. Alabama jumped back into the top 10 with a thumping win in Georgia whilst the big SEC winners were Florida (more on them later) who had a marquee win at home to Ole Miss and moved up to just outside the top 10 at 11. Of course, it’s all guesswork at the moment as the first committee rankings of the year don’t come until after…
